Climate Smart Farming

Farmers are in a unique position to be part of the solution to combat climate change. Sustainable farming practices can reduce emissions and increase farm resilience. We are excited to be part of this emerging coalition to drive this important topic which is fully in line with our global commitments to boost sustainable agriculture. We are 100% dedicated to support farmers to decrease their environmental impact, improve farm resilience and sequester carbon in the soil. Moreover, we believe that partnerships are the cornerstone to accelerate the path towards carbon neutrality in the food value chain.

What impacts do we aim for?


How do we achieve these impacts?

We are helping farmers tackle the most pressing climate challenges with the right combination of technologies.  Our technologies include nitrogen management products that improve fertilizer efficiency. Herbicide products that enable minimum tillage, reducing both carbon emissions and diesel use. New crop varieties that enhance yield and are more stress-resilient. Natural biological inoculants. And innovative digital solutions.

What target did we set for ourselves?

Mata Viva®


A collaboration united in the desire to protect water quality, conserve soil and create areas to preserve native vegetation and wildlife in the forest along the Paraiba do Sul River (Brazil).

On the English farm "The Grange”, modern agriculture and the protection of biodiversity go together. The farm is supported by the European Farm Network, a BASF partnership with experts for agriculture and nature protection. Farmers, experts for agriculture and for nature conservation join their knowhow and create measures for sustainable and productive farming.

One of the measures is the planting of flower strips in unprofitable field areas. Apart from the high yielding fields for cereal production, new habitats for wildlife are created.

Andrew Pitts, UK farmer (left), and Graham Hartwell, Environmental Stewardship, BASF (right), examine the development of the flowering strips.
